Neesh was a member of the Chattza Clan of the Rodian species from the planet Rodia. During the Galactic Civil War, Neesh became an accomplished bounty hunter and often worked alongside his fellow clan-member, Thuku.
Both Neesh and Thuku were veterans of the Rodian Clan Wars perpetuated by the warlord known as Navik the Red. As such, they were always looking to assassinate members from the rival Tetsu Clan. Neesh and Thuku hired an assassin named Spurch "Warhog" Goa to kill a young Tetsu mercenary named Greedo. Spurch had developed a relationship with Greedo and had helped the young Rodian develop his skills as a potential bounty hunter. Secretly, Spurch despised Rodians and took great joy in manipulating Greedo into going after the Corellian smuggler, Han Solo. Spurch knew that Solo would kill Greedo and he was able to successfully honor his commitment to Neesh without firing a single shot himself. Neesh and Thuku paid Spurch with a chest full of Rodian coinage, claiming that they would have killed Greedo themselves, but they did not want it to become common knowledge that they were hunting their own kind.
In the Rodian tongue, Neesh’s name means loud. The name was considered common and hearkens to a historical lineage of the Chattza people.
Neesh was shorter than most Rodians, but aside from his height, he appeared no different than any other member of his clan. He commonly dressed in an insulated, green spacer's uniform and wore a tan-colored utility vest. Presumably, this style of attire was common to many Rodians within the bounty hunting trade.
